Was lost in someone else’s world
Wading through those dreary doldrums
Yet you always held my hand
Your heart never forgot my essence….
Distance, time and people
Your arrogance and my pride
Menacingly wreaked their havoc
Yet destiny continues to smile in the end…
Always found my way back to you
Though never accepted the “love” for you
Was I blind to your presence?
Or too engrossed in meaningless pursuits?
Hiding in the shadows
Your gazes never left my back
Your once a day classroom bunks
Still leave a gaping hole in my soul….
Took so long to feel
What you feel
To see myself
The way you appreciated me
To fall for you
The way you always felt for me….
My stubbornness continues to reach new heights
Yet your patience still moves me
Listening to my complaints
Bearing my tantrums
My sightlessness still baffles me….
People ask what I love about you
Is there anything about you
That I do not admire
And I do not feel for?
After a decade of twists and turns,
You patiently weave your magic around me
You say you are spellbound
Yet I am the one who is enticed.
